Plymouth County police officer accused of falsifying report, intimidating fellow officer in investigation



BROCKTON – A Duxbury police officer has been indicted on charges that he allegedly falsified a police report and intimidated a witness during an investigation, Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz has announced.

51-year-old Steven J. Amado of Plymouth was indicted by a Plymouth County grand jury Friday on one count each of Misleading a Police Officer, Intimidation of a Police Officer, and False Crime Report.

The indictments allege that while investigating a traffic incident with property damage that occurred on May 6, Amado intentionally misidentified the operator of the motor vehicle. The indictments further allege that Amado misled the police department and intimidated a fellow officer involved with the investigation. Upon notification of the incident, Duxbury Police immediately launched an investigation and contacted the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office.

Amado, who has been a Duxbury Police officer for 24 years, is currently on administrative leave from the department and will be arraigned on the charges at a later date.

    A Duxbury police officer falsified a report about me and I wasn’t even under arrest and that report resulted in a injury from another department.
